Archer Western has been selected to build a new $28.5m TEX Rail station next to Terminal B at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in the US.

Archer Western has been selected to build a new $28.5m TEX Rail station next to Terminal B at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in the US.

The Terminal B station will serve as the last stop in TEX Rail's proposed 27-mile commuter rail project, which is currently being built by the Archer Western Herzog joint venture.

Connecting downtown Fort Worth and DFW Airport, the line will improve commuting times to and from Fort Worth.

It will begin service next year and also features a walkway connecting to the existing Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station located adjacent to Terminal A.

TEXRail will extend from downtown Fort Worth, across north-east Tarrant County, through North Richland Hills and Grapevine, and into the airport’s Terminal B.

"This line is projected to serve 8,000 riders on a daily basis at nine stations by the end of the first year of operation and by 2035 the number is expected to increase to nearly 14,000."

This line is projected to serve 8,000 riders on a daily basis at nine stations by the end of the first year of operation and by 2035 the number is expected to increase to nearly 14,000.

All nine stations will include ticket vending, covered seating, lighting, as well as security cameras.

In December last year, Fort Worth Transportation Authority and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) of the US Department of Transportation signed a $499.39m full funding grant agreement for the $1.034bn commuter rail project.

Over the last 17 years, Walsh Group member Archer Western has completed more than 55-miles of passenger lines in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
